I've got two computers side-by-side on my desk here at work. They both have the same IP address. I can be logged into the W on both computers at the same time, pretty much doing everything normally, as best as I can tell. Is this something you guys knew was possible (or cared about in the least)?

I can open three Internet Explorer windows on my PC at the same time and make three different posts. Definitely cool.

Ummmmm.....no? Maybe I'm up too early but I don't see anything strange about that.

I guess he's referring to the fact that some places, like Yahoo! Games, doesn't allow multiple connections for the same username, and will kill old connections as new ones log in. That's to stop people from being their own partner in 4 player games, like Bridge and Euchre.

I'm personally a little unclear about having 2 machines with the same IP address (at the same time) -- not from a Wienerboard perspective, but from a general networking perspective. IIRC, that's generally "a bad thing", no?

Depends on your perspective. If they were on a network together and they both have the same IP address, it is likely that neither one would work properly.

However, if both machines have different addresses but are behind the same firewall they will appear to have the same IP address as eachother to any machine that is outside that firewall.

The length of a Wienerboard session is effectively the life of the cookies you create when you log in. This is why you should always clear your cookies if you've been surfing logged in at a public terminal.

So do those cookie lengths correlate to the 'length of time to gain 1 xp' stat in our profiles?

And logging out doesn't delete the cookie so much as 'close' the connection, right? Actually, checking my cookies, I see that the userid is stored in one and the password is stored in the other. Does that mean that logging out would indeed delete those cookies?



Low tide for the time being.

Yup. They live forever unless you actually log out.

Looks like the cookies on my home machine are immortal then.

Thanks.

(And congratulations and welcome back, by the way.)

I've got a G4 and a G3. I think they are network through a Linksys router. We get ISDN (which is gay but better than dial-up, but c'mon, it's 2003) so we have an ISDN router as well. I have an ethernet cable from each computer going to the wall, and each port they are plugged into has a separate label. I can go back-and-forth between the two computers and print from each one to the same printer easily (which kind of threw off our IT guy).

If I go to each computer in the office and get the IP address they are similar but the last number is different. However, both of my computers bring up the same IP address. Since they both work perfectly I don't question it.
